I was lucky enough to interview with the author on my blog, in which he talks a little about graphic novels, cartoons and weapons.
Oldsoul was one of those books that when I first heard about it I was thinking it was going to be like most of the other books I've read recently in which the main character can communicate mentally with other people, like telepathy, except he could communicate with dead souls as well. I was completely wrong. For me it was more like reading mission impossible or bourne identity with the addition of the main character getting feedback and advice from relatives, other oldsouls etc through his mind, with the help of Erin.
I couldn't help but picture the story as an action movie as I read, huge all out fight scenes including missions and explosions and flying cars. I also think it would make a great graphic novel and through the author interview I discovered that is what he originally hoped for this story.
As the main character is a young policeman at 18 years old, this appeals to a younger audience and with a less focus on romance and more on battle, a great book recommendation for boys.
I was also a little surprised to find a focus on family ties as well. There is a story connecting Jason with his father and his grandfather that really appealed to me. I liked the struggle that he is put through, he has some hard decisions to make and only with the help of the other oldsouls is he able to fight back. After all you can't really be considered for the title of superhero without a sidekick or two.

I ran into Dan Haring during the Apocalypsies YAmazing Race (well, not literally, `cause it was on the internet) and asked if I could review Oldsoul on my blog. He was nice enough to send me a copy, and I'm so glad I read it, because it has an original hook that made me want to keep reading.

Jason is a young cop on patrol one night with his partner Marty, when they are caught scoping out a secret meeting of a notorious Italian crime family. As he comes to after being beaten and tied up, Jason hears a voice in his head telling him to hold on, and all hell breaks loose as a group of weapon-wielding vigilantes comes to his rescue. Confused, bleeding, and in pain, Jason later wakes up in a strange room, and his new life begins. According to his new friends Solon and Mela, he is an "Oldsoul," a vessel for hundreds of reincarnated souls, who all reside within Jason. Better still, he is automatically equipped with each soul's particular talents and knowledge. The speaker for the group is a soul named Erin, a young girl whom Jason gets to know quite well as the story progresses, as they learn to converse with each other without speaking aloud.

Solon also explains that the Oldsouls are facing war with the Athanatos, immortal beings who want to destroy the Oldsouls. Luckily, the Oldsouls have a weapon that can drastically hinder, if not kill, the Athanatos: their own blood. (Likewise, Athanatos blood is dangerous to Oldsouls.) Coincidentally, Jason just happens to be the Oldsoul known as the Ancient of Days, the one who is destined to defeat the enemy. The Oldsouls have a mission to keep their race going, and their best chance at survival, Jason, is finally part of the team.

The action is fast and furious as the Oldsouls try to stop the evil Athanatos Moravec.

A mixture of everyday pain, joys, love and hate. With old world fantasy of immortality and showing how even that can be taken away..,

I would like to see a sequel. I had a little difficulty with the fonts deciphering between the characters who were inside the other characters.

The idea that not only do you have past lives but all your past souls live inside you, and can help you do superhuman things -- yeah, that's intriguing, and with better dialogue and storytelling this book could be exceptionally intriguing. But it lacks any finesse or polish. I skipped over whole chunks just to get to the end and find out what happened. At least I did care about what happened, so that's saying something.

This book is a refreshing and rare combination of riveting plot and intense action with sections of deep calm and peace. It is subtly yet at times strongly magical. I found the storyline and characters to be interesting and deep. I look forward to more writings by this author.

I didn't want to put it down. Great read. Genuinely unique idea- a one-off - I had a hard time slotting this into other sci-fi/psych fare. I won't reveal the plot as the discovery was one of the things that made this book fun, although now I am hoping for another story. I hope this is the beginning of a series. Nice to read a book I can recommend to my YA boys without reservation.
